A model of river bank stability analysis
Author : Ebrahim Amiri-Tokaldany , Amir Samadi
To promote the effective management of rivers subject to bank erosion, models are needed that can provide reliable predictions of the effects of changes in river morphology or bank material characteristics, so that the undesirable impacts of channel changes can be avoided. Although there are some models of stability analysis of river banks, most of them have a number of technical and conceptual shortcoming. The important deficiency in most existing models is that they consider only one type of river bank failure; i.e. planar failure. In this research a comprehensive model of river bank stability analysis has been developed which considers three most common types of river bank failures. By using several examples, the application of the new model has also been described here.
